- A Release of Information Form must be completed and signed prior to the release of any medical information. If you do not have one, we will supply you with one.
- You are entitled to a COPY of your patient record. The original record is the property of the physician and must be retained in storage for a period of time, afterwhich it is shredded.
- Each patient of legal age or older must sign for the release of his/her own record.
- There is a fee for the transfer of medical information. The fee is set in accordance with guidelines. The fee is not prohibitive and records are not withheld once properly authorized for release.
